My wife and I stayed for three nights at the Hotel with my daughter and her fiancee. Of the four of us I was the only one who had travelled before in Holland, but had never before visited Valkenburg.

Breakfast in the morning offered a wide selection of meats, cheeses and smoked salmon, plus hot eggs, pancakes and hash potatoes. The service was excellent, the breakfast room beautifully decorated for Christmas and very clean.
